Oregon's family leave laws are changing. On March 21, 2024, Governor Tina Kotek signed a bill amending the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA) and the Paid Leave Oregon program (PLO), effective July 1, 2024. These updates are designed to better align OFLA with PLO, making it a crucial development for both employers and employees in Oregon. A few highlights include:

  • Streamlining Leave: The law aims to simplify how OFLA and PLO work together, focusing on specific areas like care for children, bereavement leave, and pregnancy-related leave.
  • Enhanced Employee Benefits: Employees can now use their paid time off to complement their pay while on PLO leave.
  • Support for Employers: New guidelines help employers manage leave benefits more efficiently, especially in coordinating employee pay.

These updates mean changes for both employers and employees, promising clearer guidelines and improved support for family leave.
